Goofs

When Catherine is on the phone to Nick, Grissom asks Catherine to ask Nick if the victims died about the same time. Catherine then asks if COD was similar for each victim. "COD" means Cause Of Death. The correct term to use would be "TOD" - Time Of Death. See more »

Leaves A Bad Taste
5 March 2007 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

A man and his wife are sleeping when their barking dog outside wakes them up. The man goes downstairs and discovers someone raiding his refrigerator. That guy races outside in the backyard where the husband sees a group - maybe 20 people, all very dirty-looking - standing there. They run off.

It turns out a body was left lying on the ground. The man has many, many injuries, too many to count. What happened to him? Who were all those people?

We see all kinds of strange scenes in this one-story episode, such a bombed-out car, another car with a body in the trunk, and most shocking: eleven recently-deceased bodies of young people lying in cots in an underground bunker. That's all part of a "Heaven's Gate"- type cult in which college age kids are recruited, believing some meteor shower is going to bring them to some kind of bliss in another world....or something like that.

The episode is interesting but too preachy, getting in a few religious cheap shots in here with numerous Biblical analogies.

Like the drink the kids took, this show left a bad taste my mouth.
